3.2 Mobie 0an1ing 0usiness Mode(
+ !ide spectrum of MobileIbranchless ban$ing models is evolving& These models differ
primarily on the 4uestion that !ho !ill establish the relationship /account opening) deposit
ta$ing) lending etc&0 !ith the end customer) the #an$ or the ?on* #an$ITelecommunication
(ompany /Telco0& Models of branchless ban$ing can be classified into three broad categories
* #an$ ;ocused) #an$*Led and ?on #an$*Led&
0an19focused mode
The ban$*focused model emerges !hen a traditional ban$ uses non*traditional lo! cost
delivery channels to provide ban$ing services to its e,isting customers& <,amples range from
use of automatic teller machines /+TMs0 to internet ban$ing or mobile phone ban$ing to
provide certain limited ban$ing services to ban$sF customers& This model is additive in nature
and may be seen as a modest e,tension of conventional branch*based ban$ing
0an19ed mode
The ban$*led model offers a distinct alternative to conventional branch*based ban$ing in that
customer conducts financial transactions at a !hole range of retail agents /or through mobile
phone0 instead of at ban$ branches or through ban$ employees& This model promises the
potential to substantially increase the financial services outreach by using a different delivery
channel /retailersI mobile phones0) a different trade partner /Telco I (hain Store0 having
e,perience and target mar$et distinct from traditional ban$s) and may be significantly cheaper
than the ban$ based alternatives& The ban$*led model may be implemented by either using
correspondent arrangements or by creating a 7A bet!een #an$ and TelcoInon*ban$& In this
model customer account relationship rests !ith the ban$&
4on 0an19ed mode
The non*ban$*led model is !here a ban$ does not come into the picture /e,cept possibly as a
safe*$eeper of surplus funds0 and the non*ban$ /e&g& Telco0 performs all the functions&

3.3 Mobie 0an1ing Overvie)(
In order to avail the services mentioned above) a user subscribing to a !ireless carrier sends
an SMS !ith a predefined code to the bul$ service providerFs number&
/ig 1( Mobile ban$ing architecture
The service provider for!ards this message to the ban$Fs mobile ban$ing applications& The
mobile ban$ing applications interface !ith the core ban$ing servers /that contain the user
account information0 that service the re4uest made by the user& The response is then sent by
the mobile ban$ing applications to the bul$ service provider !ho in turn for!ard it to the
valid user via SMS&
There are t!o !ays in !hich a ban$ can communicate !ith a customer using SMS8
1H
1& In the first method the ban$ proactively sends data to customers in response to certain
transactions& ;or e&g& account to account transfer) salary credit and some promotional
messages& This data can be sent to the customer in t!o !ays
o 39mai to mobie :32M;( In this method) the ban$ sends an email to the
mobile ban$ing application through a specific email address& This email may
consist of the message content together !ith the mobile numbers of the
customer& The mobile ban$ing application in turn sends this message in a
specific format /for e&g& LML tags are part of a :TT2 <T message 4uery
string0 to the service providerFs application server& ;rom hereon the
information from the LML tags is e,tracted and sent as a SMS to the !ireless
carrier !hich in turn for!ards this message to the customer&
o $atabase to mobie :$2M; 8 :ere a mobile ban$ing application continuously
polls the ban$s database server and !henever a relevant event happens) for
e&g& an account to account transfer) it for!ards the specific message to the
service providerFs application server& The message format may be the same as
the one used in the <3M case& This message is then for!arded to the !ireless
carrier !hich in turn for!ards this message to the customer&
3& In the second method the ban$ sends data in response to specific customer 4uery such
as account balance details& The customer first sends a pre*defined re4uest code via
SMS to the #ul$ SMS service providerFs registered mobile number& Depending on the
message code) the bul$ SMS provider for!ards the SMS to a 2.LL application in the
mobile ban$ing server& The 2.LL application receives the re4uest and for!ards it to
the core ban$ing application for further processing& The core ban$ing server then
processes this message and sends the reply to the 2.LL application !hich in turn
for!ards in to the customer via the service provider& +s in the above cases the re4uest
and the response for the 2.LL application may be a :TT2 <T message !ith LML
tags in the 4uery string&

3.4 Technoogies 0ehind Mobie 0an1ing
Technically spea$ing most of these services can be deployed using more than one channel&
2resently) Mobile #an$ing is being deployed using mobile applications developed on one of
the follo!ing four channels&
1& IAR /Interactive Aoice Response0
3& SMS /Short Messaging Service0
9& >+2 />ireless +ccess 2rotocol0
5& Standalone Mobile +pplication (lients
1. I,R < Interactive ,oice Response
IAR or Interactive Aoice Response service operates through pre*specified numbers that ban$s
advertise to their customers& (ustomer1s ma$e a call at the IAR number and are usually
greeted by a stored electronic message follo!ed by a menu of different options& (ustomers
can choose options by pressing the corresponding number in their $eypads) and are then read
out the corresponding information) mostly using a te,t to speech program& Mobile ban$ing
based on IAR has some major limitations that they can be used only for <n4uiry based
services& +lso) IAR is more e,pensive as compared to other channels as it involves ma$ing a
voice call !hich is generally more e,pensive than sending an SMS or ma$ing data transfer
/as in >+2 or Standalone clients0& One !ay to enable IAR is by deploying a 2#L system that
can host IAR dial plans& #an$s loo$ing to go the lo! cost !ay should consider evaluating
+steris$) !hich is an open source Linu, 2#L system
2. #M# < #hort Messaging #ervice
SMS uses the popular te,t*messaging standard to enable mobile application based ban$ing&
The !ay this !or$s is that the customer re4uests for information by sending an SMS
containing a service command to a pre*specified number& The ban$ responds !ith a reply
SMS containing the specific information&
1C
;or e,ample) customers of the :D;( #an$ in India can get their account balance details by
sending the $ey!ord M:D;(#+L1 and receive their balance information again by SMS&
:o!ever there have been fe! instances !here even transaction*based services have been
made available to customer using SMS& ;or instance) customers of the (enturian #an$ of
2unjab can ma$e fund transfer by sending the SMS =TR4 /+Ic ?o0 /2I? ?o0 /+mount01&
One of the major reasons that transaction based services have not ta$en of on SMS is because
of concerns about security& The main advantage of deploying mobile applications over SMS
is that almost all mobile phones are SMS enabled& +n SMS based service is hosted on a SMS
gate!ay that further connects to the Mobile service providers SMS (entre& There are a couple
of hosted I2 based SMS gate!ays available in the mar$et and also some open source ones
li$e -annel&
3. >2+ < >ireess 2ccess +rotoco
>+2 uses a concept similar to that used in Internet ban$ing& #an$s maintain >+2 sites
!hich customer1s access using a >+2 compatible bro!ser on their mobile phones& >+2 sites
offer the familiar form based interface and can also implement security 4uite effectively&
#an$ of +merica offers a >+2 based service channel to its customers in :ong -ong&
The ban$s customers can no! have an anytime) any!here access to a secure reliable service
that allo!s them to access all en4uiry and transaction based services and also more comple,
transaction li$e trade in securities through their phone&
+ >+2 based service re4uires hosting a >+2 gate!ay& Mobile +pplication users access the
ban$1s site through the >+2 gate!ay to carry out transactions) much li$e internet users
access a !eb portal for accessing the ban$s services& The follo!ing figure demonstrates the
frame!or$ for enabling mobile applications over >+2& The actually forms that go into a
mobile application are stored on a >+2 server) and served on demand& The >+2 ate!ay

Standalone mobile applications are the ones that hold out the most promise as they are most
suitable to implement comple, ban$ing transactions li$e trading in securities& They can be
easily customi=ed according to the user interface comple,ity supported by the mobile& In
36
addition) mobile applications enable the implementation of a very secure and reliable channel
of communication&
One re4uirement of mobile applications clients is that they re4uire to be do!nloaded on the
client device before they can be used) !hich further re4uires the mobile device to support one
of the many development environments li$e 73M< or Nualcomm1s #R<>& 73M< is fast
becoming an industry standard to deploy mobile applications and re4uires the mobile phone
to support 7ava&
The major disadvantage of mobile application clients is that the applications needs to be
customi=ed to each mobile phone on !hich it might finally run& 73M< ties together the +2I
for mobile phones !hich have the similar functionality in !hat it calls 1profiles1&
Out of 73M< and #R<>) 73M< seems to have an edge right no! as ?o$ia has made the
development tools open to developers !hich has further fostered a huge online community
focused in developing applications based on 73M<& ?o$ia has gone an additional mile by
providing an open online mar$et place for developers !here they can sell their applications to
major cellular operators around the !orld&
Nuite a fe! mobile soft!are product companies have rolled out solutions) !hich enable
73M< mobile applications based ban$ing& One such product is >ireless Ibanco& The mobile
user do!nloads and installs the !ireless I*banco application on their 73M< pone& The 73M<
client connects to the !ireless I*banco server through the service providers SM net!or$ to
enable users to access information about their accounts and perform transactions& One of the
other big advantages of using a mobile application client is that it can implement a very
secure channel !ith end*to*end encryption&
:o!ever countries li$e India face a serious obstacle in the proliferation of such clients as fe!
users have mobiles) !hich support 73M< or #R<>& :o!ever) one of the biggest (DM+
players in the Indian telecom industry) Reliance Infocomm has about H&61 million users all of
!hich have handsets) !hich support 73M<& Reliance has unveiled one of the most ambitious
data services deployment program in the country& On the other hand a country li$es South

la$e and lin$age compare to other ban$ of the same generation& The recommendations for this
report are8
Mobile ban$ing is a ne! concept for ban$ing sector in #angladesh& So it must
be campaign to the rural people&
:ere only agreement !ith t!o mobile companies but it should be agreement
!ith other company&
Te,t only and limited to 156*1B6 characters per massages& So it could not
e,press all things in short massage&
Does not offer a secure environment&
Many non standard variables including handsets !hich is not necessary to
mobile ban$ing services&
.ser needs to have a data plan !hich may be a barrier to adoption among
price sensitive demographics&
Some !ireless operators do not support clic$able >+2 lin$s in sms message&
+pplication and data entry must be controlled&
Mobile #an$ing should be more e,panded in eneral Level of ban$ing' they
should be adopted for depositing and !ithdra!al of money as !ell&

D##L should set more +TM booth so that people can get their money at
shortest possible time&
+s the clients are not in favor of introducing system) if possible the rule of
introducing to open an account should be changed& #ecause many people are
facing problem to arrange an introducer in the time of opening accounts
To ma$e e,change process more prompt the authority should use modern
communication system& That means changing procedure should be informed
by #an$ to the concerned through SMS) e*mail) fa, etc&

-oncusion
Mobile ban$ing is poised to become the big $iller mobile application arena& :o!ever) ban$s
going mobile the first time need to tread the path cautiously& The biggest decision that ban$s
need to ma$e is the channel that they !ill support their services on&
56
Mobile ban$ing through an SMS based service !ould re4uire the lo!est amount of effort) in
terms of cost and time) but !ill not be able to support the full breath of transaction*based
services& :o!ever) in mar$ets li$e India !here a bul$ of the mobile population users1 phones
can only support SMS based services) this might bathe only option left&
On the other hand a mar$et heavily segmented by the type and comple,ity of mobile phone
usage might be good place to roll of >+2 based mobile applications& + >+2 based service
can let go of the need to customi=e usability to the profile of each mobile phone) the trade*off
being that it cannot ta$e advantage of the full breadth of features that a mobile phone might
offer&
Mobile application standalone clients bring along the burden of supporting multiple mobile
device profiles& +ccording to the artner roup) mobile ban$ing services !ill have to
support a minimum of @6 different device profiles in the near future& :o!ever) currently the
best user e,perience) depending on the capabilities of a mobile phone) is possible only by
using a standalone client&
Mobile ban$ing has the potential to do to the mobile phone !hat <*mail did to the Internet&
Mobile +pplication based ban$ing is poised to be a big m*commerce feature) and if South
-orea1s foray into mass mobile ban$ing is any indication) mobile ban$ing could !ell be the
driving factor to increase sales of high*end mobile phones& ?evertheless) #an$1s need to ta$e
a hard and deep loo$ into the mobile usage patterns among their target customers and enable
their mobile services on a technology !ith reaches out to the majority of their customers&
